We talk a City Tour that ended at this little spot known as Intramuros. For outsiders it was an eye opener to realize how heavily influenced the Philippines is by the Spanish. So this town was built by the Spanish when they were there and...More

A visit to the Intramuros is the best introduction to colonial era Manila. Aside from San Augustin Cathedral, the interior buildings were destroyed during the second world war when most of the perimeter walls were damaged as well. Fortunately, large sections of the wall have...More
